try just running
Code:
alsaconf
and lets see if we can reconfigure your sound card. Also does look to be a problem with this pulseaudio. Not sure exactly what that is. I don't seem to have it on my debian laptop either.

Ok so after a quick check pulseaudio is a sound server that operates on posix and win32 systems. Some of the functions is to pass sound data between the application and the hardware. It is also used as a sound server giving the ability to pass sound to remote workstations.
http://www.pulseaudio.org/ Here is the link. But I really think that is the problem. We need to look out how we can get your sound to by pass this. I am somewhat sure that running alsaconf might do that
